What was the most interesting question?

"The interviewer (4th year student) had a sheet of questions to ask...but she didn't "ask" questions...it flowed very well...she merely would bring something up and we would talk about it: 1) talked about my research 2) talked about my volunteer experience 3) why dentistry, my different experiences w/ dentistry 4) how I deal with stress 5) public speaking -this was the stuff I remember her getting from her paper...I could give everything we talked about but I think it was just stuff that came up in conversation...I asked a lot about her and the school to get her talking as much as possible...maybe that will help..." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"I wasn't asked this question but one of the other guys was asked by a faculty member "what the role of a dentist is in society"....not difficult but I don't think I saw this one in the other feedback sections...." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN...you will find all the possible questions on this forum....Mark put together a 175 page book of information about tufts...pretty much all you need to know is in their...but I would readd through it and write down a few questions to ask him...he loves to answer questions and give all the information possible..." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"great facilities, whole school is peper-less, digital radiography, boston is awesome, faculty was nice" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"wish it was cheaper, but at this point it seems like they're all expensive" Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I had previously read that all of the interviewers were 4th year students, while an unlucky one would have a faculty plus a 4th year...but atleast for my interview, I would say 3 or 4 of the students were interviewed by a faculty (out of 10 interviewees)..." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I really liked the interview...it was my third and it seemed to be the best of the three so far...there was a post in the forums by someone (howui3) who gave a detailed synopsis of the entire day...I read his post before the interview and it was pretty much exact, even the fact that you feel like you're on the Apprentice when you're in the board room...my interview lasted about an hour, but I was the 2nd to last one done...I asked who was the first one done, and a guy's interview was 15 mintutes (with a faculty)..so you can expect anywhere from 15-60 minutes...relax and enjoy, this was an easy interview..."
